(KMOV)-- MODOT has reopened the two westbound lanes on the Blanchette Bridge after crews replaced girders and support beams Thursday morning.
Broken expansion joints, emergency repairs and cracked steel beams caused crews to work on the bridge in the last year.
The Blanchette Bridge will go through a major rehabilitation project in 2012.
